    What is most considered when selecting a wheelbase. How extended is practical? I'm assuming bringing the DFW back would allow for stability when wanting COM farther back towards the rear and If I'm following correctly some post COM as 1/2", meaning 1/2" in front of rear axles. I guess I've just heard/read much info on extending wheelbase as much as possible but have seen many cars not following that line of thought.
